Trading up: Ballyvolane, Cork €275,000

Bathrooms: 1 

Bedrooms: 3

BER Rating: D2

Since they bought the three-bed semi six years ago, they re-plumbed, re-wired, redecorated, and put in new windows and doors as well as a new kitchen and bathroom.

When they finished all that they landscaped the back garden and added an Indian sandstone patio and raised beds.

Seeking offers of €275,000, Mark Gosling of Behan Irwin & Gosling says the condition is excellent and that the location, with easy access to the North Ring Road and the city centre, is popular.

Built in the mid 1970s, the property has space at the side for an extension, if the buyer wants something larger.

At the front there’s a carpeted dining room with a marble fireplace and beyond this at the rear a kitchen with teal walls, cream units, and fitted appliances.

There’s also a long purple and cream living room with a white cast iron stove and French doors leading out to the garden.

Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms including two with fitted wardrobes.

Out back there’s a long stepped lawned garden with a patio while out front there’s parking for two cars.

Verdict: All that’s left for the buyer to do is to improve on the D2 energy rating.
